The most closely watched mayoral contest in Orange County is between Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido and Councilman David Benavides. Santa Ana mailboxes recently received a hit piece against Pulido from an independent expenditure campaign, Stand Up Santa Ana Coalition.
The mail piece asks “Why do local leaders and police officers oppose Mayor Miguel Pulido?” on one side. On the other it answers with a list of alleged ethical lapses by Pulido.
A separate mail piece from the Benavides campaign highlights his goals for a new era in Santa Ana under his leadership.
